Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites


Course Description

This unit covers the design, implementation and performance monitoring of Internetworking systems. It encompasses safe working practice, evaluating customer requirements, applying sound design principles, complying with regulation and standards, incorporation of advance security technologies and documentation of design and performance monitoring.
Note: This unit applies to all aspects of Electrotechnology – engineering applications only. For general competencies related to Information Technologies refer to the latest endorsed IT Training Package.

Learning Outcomes

Details of Learning Activities

Classroom tutorial activities:
Lectures: to introduce the important concepts.

- Attending lectures will make it much easier for you to understand the central concepts of the course
- You will feel more comfortable and you will learn more if you read the relevant material before you attend the lectures

Tutorials: to enable you to ask questions and to clarify unresolved issues
- Review the material and prepare your questions before you come to class
- There will be an overview of course content with a focus on the material students find difficult
- If something is unclear or if you find yourself falling behind please ask for help immediately
- You may be given worksheets to complete during the tutorial

Practical exercises: to give you the hands on experience of implementing and troubleshooting networks
- In general there will be one practical exercise per week
- You will perform the exercise and write it up in a lab journal
- The lab journal will be a bound exercise book
- Loose leaf binders will not be accepted
- The write up will be a record of your actions as they are performed and your corresponding observations
- The write up must be performed in the lab as you perform the practical exercise, not at a later date
- Write ups not in the lab journal will not be marked
- Write ups which are not done concurrently with the performance of the practical exercise will not be marked
- In general the detail of the write up must be sufficient for you to be able to comfortably perform the practical exercise a year or more later directly from the lab journal
- Any difficult or tricky points should be especially noted in the lab journal for future reference
- Responses to worksheets for practical exercises must be written up in the lab journal
- The neatness, completeness and the presentation of the lab journal must be of a quality such that you would be prepared to show it to a future employer as an example of your work

Work simulated activities: you will computer related tasks and scenarios to complete as you would be expected to do in industry.

Test and exams:
- You will be required to read and study at least one chapter of the course content per week

Occupational Health and Safety:
Conduct in lecture theatres, classrooms and laboratories will be of a
standard required by OH&S legislation as applied to industry.
- You must behave in such a way as not to place the health and safety of yourself or anyone else at risk
- Covered shoes must be worn in all labs
- Thongs and sandals must not be worn in any lab

Preparation for the Work place:
All skills and knowledge in this course are oriented towards current industry practices and technologies. An essential industry expectation is that you are responsible for your behaviour and actions. When you are in employment you will be expected to attend work on time on a regular basis, perform you work on time to an accepted standard and be responsible for what you do. Industry will expect you to comprehend and follow both verbal and written instructions. All industry expectations will applied to you in this course. You will be expected to:
- Observe all Occupational Health and Safety requirements
